Disabling Macros in a Workbook (Excel VBA)

Many workbooks will have macros embedded with it. When you open the Workbook in Excel, you would have noticed the Dialog with options Enable Macros / Disable Macros

The following code snippet (Excel 2003) uses Application.FileDialog method to open a Workbook and disables the macros in it:

Sub Open_File_With_Macros_Disabled()

Dim i1 As Integer
Dim secAutomation As MsoAutomationSecurity

secAutomation = Application.AutomationSecurity

Application.AutomationSecurity = msoAutomationSecurityForceDisable

With Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogOpen)
.Show
For i1 = 1 To .SelectedItems.Count
MsgBox .SelectedItems(i1)
Workbooks.Open .SelectedItems(i1)

Next i1
End With

Application.AutomationSecurity = secAutomation

End Sub
